Aired: 3/26/13

After an emotional elimination, Chef Ramsay sends all of the remaining competitors back to the dorm - except Jeremy. Gordon calls the contestant forward and tells him that he's worried about his performance. He asks him if he's lost his fight and implores the lead cook to find his voice, and Jeremy responds by vowing not to let his mentor down.

After a horrific dinner service followed by a night of team bonding, Chef Ramsay has an early morning surprise. The contestants find Gordon on the street, ready to start the first "HK 3K."

Chef Ramsay picks one contestant from each team to race to the kitchen while the rest prep for lunch service. He chooses Mary for the women and Dan for the men.

Although Dan beats Mary back to the kitchen, the women quickly catch up. Both kitchens breeze through the apps and quickly move on to serving entrees, with the men more determined than ever to win their first challenge. But when Zach brings reheated salmon to the pass, Chef Ramsay throws him off the station. In the meantime, the women are closing in on the finish line, and they win yet another challenge.
